IssueWhen creating a Data Feed calculation, you cannot refer to a Cross-Reference field directly using a REF function.
ResolutionA calculation in the Data Feed engine bypasses Archer and uses SyncFusion for processing, which does not allow the usage of the REF function.

The workaround is to create a Calculated Field of the same type and place it in the parent Application which you can refer to directly in the feed.
  1. Create a calculated field of the same type (Date, Numeric, Text, Values List)
  2. Create a validated calculation of the Cross-Reference field and child
  3. Refer to your newly created calculated field in the Data Feed calculation rather than the Cross-Reference
